actually this is a real problem. men need to show their manhood and arguably george w. bush had something to prove to the nation and to himself and to his father, when he evaded iraq. i mean you don't have to get too heavy into the psycho babl to see the draw and lure of war men have been drawn by. eisenhower had won world war ii, conquered, liberated europe. teddy roosevelt an interesting example. got war out of his system by charging up san juan hills. he was the ultimate war lover. he was almost crazy about it. but he got it out of his system by doing it himself. when he became president he was not -- we talked about speak softly but carry a big stick, he believed in power but he didn't rush. he was not des trait praits to rush into a war because he proved himself. >> let's talk about woodrow wilson and world war i. how did he respond to world war i? >> slowly. and moved toward engagement, involvement, in a way that was driven by a high-minded ideology that america having preserved itself and he was a conflicted southerner, that's redundant. >> yes. >> sometimes. >> that is.

appearance was beneficial for him. >> bush figured out in 2000 and 2004, i think george w. bush in 2000, would -- early in the campaign it seems to me, i remember him going to one inner city stop after another inner city stop and we were all scratching our heads why are they doing it, they weren't doing it to win votes in the inner city, they were doing it to win votes in the philadelphia suburbs. >> because in the philadelphia suburbs they like a compassionate conservative which mitt romney has proved he's not this campaign. >> has he proven that? >> those primaries, i -- i think did it. but on the theory that 90% of life is showing up, it was a good thing to go. a good thing he went. he had the opportunity to show the nonindependent voter that he wasn't going to go all wobbly. the people he's still going to protect are people like him. and he -- right there in the lion's den he said i'm not going to protect you. >> jon meacham, you talked about historical trends, we both talked about how this duopoly of parties that's been around for 150 years is sure to crack, for a lot of younger am

offering strategic advice to house republicans. former president george w. bush is making it perfectly clear he has no interest in joining the public discourse. in a recent interview with the hoover institution, bush talked about his role as a former president and why he is staying out of the public eye. >> i think it's bad for the presidency to have former presidents bloviating, opining or telling people how it ought to be done. eight years was awesome and i was famous and i was powerful and -- but i have -- i have no desire for fame and power anymore. i -- i don't want to undermine our president whoever is president, and a former president can do that. i think it's bad for the presidency itself. either you're in or out of politics and i've chosen to be out. you can't be halfway. given the environment with the blogs and this that and the other. i told -- pretty unattractive metaphor, i crawled out of the swamp. i'm not crawling back in. and, you know, i'm interested in politics. i'm a supporter of mitt romney. i hope he does well. but, you know, he can do well without me. >> the forme

brain. you look at what he was able to do with george w. bush. is his power now doubled, tripled, tenfold given what he can do with t system now? >> it's so much broader. bush's success at fund-raising was about bundling. rove and ed gillespie looked at mccain-feingold and said we are in trouble without some changes. now with the koch brothers, the chamber of commerce, rove having a billion dollars to spend on the election. >> when i came in as chairman and a lot of people with the narrative in washington is about fund-raising and all of that. my first call with a major donor, i'm giving to rove's group. i said, you can give to rove's group and our group. that's the reality for the political parties. these entities. citizens united. >> it's frightening. >> they can have a bigger impact bit boils down to this. the bottom line is the ground game. that's where they don't get to play yet. i suspect down the road, they will. watch for that. >> it's also, i think, scary because as much as we express concern about past negative campaigns and goodness knows we can think of them, there wa

to continue f you listen, the foreign policy where the united states is engaged as george w. bush said in 2005, in the second inaugural address, all four corners of the globe, quote, to end tyranny. it's just not going to happen and we're going to bankrupt ourself, tom friedman, trying. >> couple things. one, i personally believe and felt we have four choices in afghanistan. lose early, lose late, lose big or lose small. i would like to lose early and small and -- because there's no win that's going to happen there, number one number two, we're going from an era where for 50 years this is an exaggeration, but generally speaking to be a president, college president, mayor or governor was unbalanced to give things away to people. entering an era to be a president, college president, mayor governor is going to be take things away from people. as the congressman says, you can grow without a plan, but you better not cut without a plan. if i want to lose weight i can lose weight quickly cutting off both thumbs. might have a little trouble getting my next computing job. how we cut now, i thin

it's probably unanswerable. but why has this president and the past president, george w. bush, been seemingly so afraid to use the word, we have to sacrifice, the word sacrifice. you know, have they never gone back and listened to franklin roosevelt in the '30s? why are they so afraid of us? >> because the last president to do that in an explicit way was jimmy carter who is now regarded as the very epitome of he's a bummer. he asked us to sacrifice, used the word malaise, we don't do that as president anymore. >> goes back to the notion of national service. if you wrap it up to what we can do for our country people would step up and say i'm in. count me in. >> yeah. >> well, why won't the republicans count themselves in on this, just even temporarily, until there's some sort of deal? >> i think most importantly they feel that the economy -- we need some certainty. >> is this going to hurt the economy? >> well, they're for permanent extension of the bush tax cuts which have been in place for a while. president clinton has talked about extension of the bush tax cuts. senate -- number

george w. bush, three men who personally have very little love for politics, very little love for the sport of it all, very little love or understanding of the grand sweep of history, unlike say a bill clinton or a ronald reagan or an fdr. there just doesn't seem to be the joy in these guys either on the campaign trail or when they're governing. they seem to be -- well, at least the two that are running this time technocrats. >> they're competitive without being cheerful. i any what mark just said is exactly right, that politicians get in trouble when they act as though they're pundits or color commentators. you think about obama -- wandered into the truth but that editorial meeting in washington state in 2008 when he said reagan was transformative but clinton wasn't. >> nevada. >> reno. >> however true that might be, it was the wrong way to say it. >> you can't say it as a presidential candidate. >> the thing that really struck me about looking at romney in london was his lack of agility. it was this incredibly stiff presentation which i find striking. >> you think about obama in 200

put this up with george w. bush who was asked after four years if he had made any mistakes and he goes, can't really think of any. i mean, he was too smart for the american people is the takeaway there. >> it fits in i think of biographical view of the president which is that, you know, he's very intelligent man in a business that requires both intelligence and intellectual kind and emotional intelligence. to defend the president is, you know, someone who would have agreed was franklin roosevelt who on september 11th, 1932 in "the new york times" magazine he said the presidency is not chiefly a job about efficiency or engineering, it's preeminently a place of moral leadership. and all great presidents have been leaders of the nation at a time when certain ideas required clarification. and so the presidents we look back on as truly transformative leaders did both. they got the policy right and articulated it. the jury is still out, though, on the president having gotten the policy right. >> joe, i actually disagree, although i've been agreeing with you lately, i disagree here. we s
